February is Starlight Month [time for musing]

Seems like everyone else gets to give weird themes to the months, why can't I manipulate the month of my birth to my needs? This month's blog theme will be childhood fantasy favourites - those that stand up to the test of time and those that should have been left as a fond memory. The cliched tale of a 10 year old girl disguising herself as a boy to train as a knight, dancing puppets, a certain warrior princess that we all wish we could forget about, and plenty of wizards, goblins and princes that should have been left in the past. I'm going to be taking a trip down memory lane to sort out which of these child fantasy pieces are worth revisiting, and which to avoid for the rest of my adult life.

Warning: the next month's blog may be filled with obscure subjects that may be unrecognizable to anyone who is not a 20-23 year old female living in Canada. There will be subjects before your time, after your time, way too girly for you, and completely unseen beyond the borders of the great white north. But I hope to cover enough of these childhood favourites that there will be something to drown people of all ages, sexes and nationalities in nostalgia.
